Katie Mullen, a MFA candidate at Montana State University, is pleased to announce the opening of her thesis video installation Birding Blind at the Waller-Yoblonsky Gallery located in the Melvin Graduate Art Studios in Bozeman, MT. The show will be on exhibit from Monday, March 27 to Friday, March 31, 2017 from 5-7 PM each day. The reception will be held at the same location Friday, March 31, 2017 from 6-8 PM. Drinks and light snacks will be provided. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
Birding Blind (2017) is a 3-channel video installation embodied by long takes, slow motion, and static shots of common birds in and around Bozeman, MT, in autumn. The installation shares the experience of bird watching with its audience to allow the viewers to discern the reasons for the widespread hobby.
This piece represents the visual portion of Mullen’s MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking. Over the last three years in the program she has come to enjoy alternative nonfiction films that communicate with subtlety in imagery and sound, films that cause viewers to get lost in emotion and contemplation.

The Waller-Yoblonsky Gallery is located west of campus at 2998 West Lincoln Street, a dirt road near the MSU Livestock Department and agricultural areas. No parking passes are required when viewing during exhibition times.
